Scary price on benz

Sometimes when somebody says they set to buy a used mercedes,it actually means they already bought.
I tried to save her thousands but was to late,as for the guy that paid 30 g for an 02 with 40thousand miles,he is a whole nuther story
Shop smart,buy private party,inspect,inspect,inspect!
ohlord
note how the dealer kindly came down in price cuz the lot was full
2001 e320 with 40,000 miles should i buy an out of state car
lot was full so you get a real good deal gotta love those dealer sales people,don't ya

Because this site is so full I will charge you only $20 for that post.

You can only hope that the guy bought that car when it was only a couple of years old.

KBB Dealer retail is over $20K for the 2001 E320 with average goodies on it, in average condition. Good Condition Private Party is over $16K so it sounds to me like she got a pretty good deal if she paid around $15 at a dealer. Most likely means she got some sort of minimal warranty options and the car would have been inspected and niggling things fixed.

Car was not in any way "overpriced by thousands".

And since nobody but a dealer prices a car

with kbb and nobody should buy a car based on kbb,she did pay several thousands over market.
Fact,fini,done.

nearly $16000 for an 01,you need to get out more to even suggest it is a good deal.Check the market.low mile 99's dropping below 9g,00's in the tens,01's in the 12-13 range,an 02 low mile for mid 13g in near perfect condition.

Car in anyway was most certainly "overpriced by thousands"

Than it is her money.
You are not trying to make her feel bad, do you?

Yes

you are correct it is her money.
My point was why people ask" should I buy"?When they have already leapt and made a purchase.Sort of like saying,should I be mad at myself?after the fact.
Merely an observation on my part.
You know that old Ben Franklin thing about "paying to much for your whistle"
